Keep walking into the dark in the hope of light
Or surrender, and gasp at the darkness within
Stare at the overcast night sky in the hope of a star
Or shut the lids and see nothing beyond
Ambled on the red barren in the hope of an oasis
Or relinquish and drown in your own sweat
Hold on to the last thread in the hope to step up
Or release the grip and fall into the hollow
Spatter the ocean with might in the hope to float
Or give up and let the water fill in to sink
Choose! Want to put up a great show
Or abandon the chance to show up!
